Canadian compensation law and vibration-induced white finger. A revised description.

by Paterson C

Compensation for vibration-induced white finger (VWF) under Canadian law is reviewed. The historical information available in claims data is indicated with specific reference to British Columbia. The bases upon which the disease is recognized for compensation purposes in British Columbia and Ontario are described. Reference is made to the status of VWF in the compensation schemes of other Canadian provinces. The limitations of the current approaches are noted.
